Engin Altan Düzyatan
Born: 26th July 1979
Engin studied Theatre at University and then moved to Istanbul to start his acting career. His screen debut came in the series Ruhsar in 1997. He has a long history in films and series. He acted in three more series before he acted in his first movie in 2005, Beyaza’nin Kadinlari. Up until 2009, he appeared in several series and films.
Then he played the role in which I first saw him. Doctor Serdar in the series Bir Bulut Olsam. This was a very hard-hitting series about mental and physical abuse that also starred Engin Akyürek, and was directed by the best ever director Meral Okay, she also starred in it as his mother.
Between 2010 and 2011 he appeared in the popular film Romantik Komedi and also hosted the Turkish version of Million Pound Drop. Since 2014 he has had the lead role in the extremely popular Diriliş: Ertuğrul. A big favourite of the President it has done very well in regards to ratings.
Engin was engaged to Ozge Ozpirincci but broke up. He met and married Neslişah Alkoçlar in 2014 and they have a son called Emir. He is on social media and has an Instagram page with 1.4 million followers. Due to the success of Dirilis Ertugril Engin is very popular in Turkey and also around the rest of the world. When the series ends in 2019 I will be eager to see what project Engin will take next.
